Mobilgas Economy Run
This one made several years after Show Em the Road, also by Sid Davis about the Mobilgas Economy Runs. You can fit both films (make sure you download BOTH pts.I and II for both films) on a TV watchable DVD. The volume in Show em needs to come up a bit, too.
Very amusing film about a high school girl's discovery of the Mobilgas Economy Runs, which were being run nationwide. She gets one started at Peninsula High, because there have been problems with hoodlums and their "shot-rods"! No more dates!
Worth watching for the malt-shop dialog alone!

Meanwhile in dullsville..
Another alternate universed Sid Davis flick here folks. In this movie, the kids in San Fransisco decide how to solve the racing problem there (of one kid) is to have a "Safety Economy Run" where the main purpose is not about speed.. but about mileage and safety! Joy! Narrated by a whiny voiced and observant teenage girl (which is refreshing for a Sid Davis Film) this film features many clean clean CLEAN teenagers doing wholesome things like going to the malt shop, dancing and other cute things. Heck even the main 'bad' guy in the film, who doesnt want to race is quite a pussy as well lol. The race itself looks plenty dull, and I can't imagine who on earth would find this exciting.
